Sol. The three quantities are: horizontal component of earth’s magnetic field, magnetic declination and angle of dip.
b) The angle of dip at a location in southern India is about 18º. Would you expect a greater or smaller dip angle in Britain?
Sol. Great, because it increases from equator to poles.
